[SUMMARY]: Serial number from shell ?

The general consensus is NO, there is no way to get the serial number

Some good suggestions for the future include storing the serial number in a
file like /etc/serialnumber where you can get to it later, or in the
"oem-banner" variable like this:-

ok> setenv oem-banner Serial# 123h4567


# eeprom oem-banner="Serial# 123h4567"

Then to get at it, it's a simple case of

# eeprom | grep Serial#

Is there anyway to get the serial number of a Sun box from the shell ?
Like "hostid" or "showrev" will give you the Hostid.
